Volunteer Pack

This coming October is Pituitary Awareness Month and the theme will be ‘Living Well’! We are asking you as volunteers to help share our awareness month to your support groups or other channels that you may have available for you. This will help us engage more people and spread the word about the support that The Pituitary Foundation can offer.

Below are some examples of wording that you could put in your support group newsletter or share on social media if you have it. Please feel free to edit this information, especially the dates. There is no pressure for you to do this, but every post will help our awareness month reach new audiences. We have created some graphics that are available to download to share alongside the social media posts, with a suggested timeline, or in your support group newsletters.
